The sexiest couple on TV is going globe-trotting once more, as Claire and Jamie Fraser set off toward warmer climates for Outlander season three. The show’s production is moving to Cape Town, South Africa, to film its adventures on the high seas, but as a result, season three won’t return until September 2017 instead of May, as fans expected. The show’s next season is based on Voyager, the third book in Diana Gabaldon’s fantasy series, which finds our favorite tartan-clad duo sailing to Jamaica. We can only hope that South Africa will be a stand-in for the Caribbean country, but the show has not announced those specifics yet. The move marks an extended departure from Scotland, where the show has primarily been based so far, and while there are few things so romantic as the Highlands, higher temperatures mean fewer layers. And no one was ever mad about clothes being shed on Outlander.
